Thibaut Courtois suffered a crucial defeat on Saturday, but his former club Chelsea are expected to react strongly when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Chelsea beat Brentford 4-1 at home in the Premier League, while Madrid beat Celta Vigo 2-1 in La Liga.
Cote made 154 appearances for Chelsea before moving to Santiago Bernabeu in 2018.
Real Madrid beat Celta "Today's victory is important. Chelsea lost at home and will be very strong for Wednesday. Sometimes we are not tense and Chelsea make good use of it," Courtois said.
Los Blancos won, but referee Pablo Gonzalez Fuertes was lucky after receiving three penalties. This is the first time Madrid have scored three goals in a single La Liga match since Opta began recording such data in 2003-04.
Karim Benzema scored twice and saved one, but Madrid took a 12-point lead, with Courtois acknowledging how difficult it was in the first half from an Iago Aspas free kick. It was a game.
"We experienced it here and all the games I played here were very difficult." "I don't know if we deserved to win because we scored two goals in the first half.
Three penalties will not be added. The first and second are yes. Third, I find my goal more difficult. But if you put your foot down, call the three of us today, because it has been a long time since they called us. "
Aspas was less confident than the referee after the match and said: "He just needs to bring in a fourth penalty. Benzema's hat-trick is what he wants."
The Belgium international has praised former Liverpool striker Cortori after rescuing his free-kick from the efforts of Dennis Suarez and Diego Gahado. Aspas is not allowed when he is prevented from clearing David Alaba as an offside ball.
"He's the best goalkeeper in the world," Aspas said. He seemed to be listening.
Nolito overtook Courtois but to no avail for the 11th-placed Celta.
